MP3 INTRODUCTION Two years ago, MP3 was just another audio compression format. Today, it\'s a Net phenomenon that\'s at the center of an enormous controversy. That\'s because MP3 makes it possible for people with an Internet connection to bypass record stores (and cashiers) and download CD-quality music by their favorite artists--for free. MP3 is great for music lovers and cheapskates, who can download funky tunes to their hearts\' content without spending a dime; however, it\'s a nightmare for

What I’ve learned is that all I really knew was buzz words: megahertz, gigabyte, ram, megabyte, etc. I also assumed bigger was better, and there may be some truth to that statement. However, it is equally true that bigger is not always necessary. I needed to purchase a computer that would satisfy all the needs and wants of the family.

It\'s human nature to both need a reason for why something happens, and to pass the blame to someone and/or something else. In 1690\'s Salem, witches were blamed for all misfortune and innocents were hung. In 1930\'s and 1940\'s Germany, the Jewish faction of society was blamed for all that was wrong, and put to death.

The door opened, and out stepped a young man. He was not too tall, his blonde hair gathered behind him in a ponytail. His eyes sparkled ever-so-slightly in the morning sun as he stretched with a loud groan. He strode a few steps from the cottage and looked around. It was a great day out. He was dressed comfortably in slightly baggy blue jean

Love Essay in Praise of Love 12 September 2000 Love is not a god as the fine philosophers of Greece once suggested. Love is something far more powerful and universal, for not all people believe in gods, yet people cannot refuse the existence of love. Instead, love is a condition of the human body that cannot be denied. True love is obstinate; in the way that music pours into the ears of an audience, love pouring into the heart of a man cannot be stopped, denied, or set off course. Love is a natu
